Notes

I love cheesecake and I am ALWAYS looking for one recipe to top the last one- This one definitely did NOT disapoint! It is a very smooth and creamy versatile cheesecake.

You can add ingredients to it or top it with so many different things! I chose to make a light and creamy peppermint white Chocolate Cheesecake for Christmas!

Have fun with this versatile recipe and use your imagination!

I'm not waiting for Chrismas to try this one!! YUM, my two favs, peppermint AND white chocolate. Thank you for sharing!
